Last week, Blake Lively left her fans stunned with a surprise baby bump reveal of a fourth child at the Forbes Power Women’s summit. Congratulations have been pouring in for the actress and husband, Ryan Reynolds, who already has three children – James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 3.
Following the bump reveal, it, however, appears paparazzi are desperate for shots of Lively storming the outside of her home.
35-Year-Old Lively reportedly got fed up with the stunt, and in response to the eleven male paparazzi, Lively has posted a bunch of photos of herself on Instagram, captioning it: “Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a sighting will leave me alone.”
She insisted: “You freak me and my kids out.”
And added: “Thanks to everyone else for all the love and respect and for continuing to unfollow accounts and publications who share photos of children. You have all the power against them. And thank you to the media who have a ‘No Kids Policy.’ You all make all the difference.”
The photos show the Betty Buzz founder glowing. Pal Taylor Swift and Sisters Robyn Lively made appearances, and so as Reynolds.
Lively had previously spoken out against Paparazzi. In 2021, she had dubbed a snap ‘deceitful’ after a photographer shared a seemingly happy image of her and her three daughters. She, at the time, wrote: “The real story is: My children were being stalked by a man all day. Jumping out. And then hiding. A stranger on the street got into words with them because it was so upsetting for her to see.”
“When I tried to calmly approach the photographer you hired to take these pictures in order to speak to him, he would run away. And jump out again at the next block.”
Lively continued: “(For) the photographers who would speak to me, I was able to agree to smile and wave and let them take my picture away from my children if they would leave my kids alone. Because it was frightening.” Nonetheless, the Age of Adaline star first revealed her pregnancy while attending the 10th annual Forbes Power Women’s summit.
For the occasion on September 15, Lively was in a sparkling sequined dress and showed off her legs in sky-high heels.
The actress wasn’t hiding her pregnancy as she gently cradled her stomach before heading into her panel. Lively even told reporters at the event, as per E!News: “I just like to create. Whether that’s baking or storytelling or businesses or human, I just like creating.” In November 2021, Reynolds shared he was taking a sabbatical from acting to spend time with his wife Lively and children.
